Sorry, Rays fans: No go for Go-Go's
Posted on: June 10, 2010 3:38 pm
It's been a rough week in "long-irrelevant bands playing after baseball games" news.
First, Hall and Oates declared Monday that they were canceling a concert after the July 2 Diamondbacks game in protest of Arizona's new immigration law.
Just when we had started to process our grief over that blow, there's this: The Go-Go's have scrapped their summer "farewell tour" after guitarist Jane Wiedlin suffered a knee injury. Looks like no show after the Rays game on July 10.
But take heart, baseball fans. There will still be postgame concerts this season featuring (really ) LL Cool J, Trace Adkins, Bret Michaels, Lynyrd Skynyrd, REO Speedwagon, Collective Soul, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Lou Gramm, Phil Vassar and Kool & the Gang.
